American University of Antigua College of Medicine is an international medical school that uses a medical curriculum that is comparable to curricula used in the UK, US, and Canadian medical schools. AUA was created to give aspiring students an opportunity to study medicine in a welcoming and supportive environment. The AUA International Track offers students clinical placements and teaching in the UK.
Based on a review of AUA’s curriculum by UK’s General Medical Council (GMC), any doctor awarded a primary medical qualification from AUA will be able to apply to sit the Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) test and for GMC registration, without having their qualification individually assessed. The General Medical Council (GMC) helps to protect patients and improve medical education and practice in the UK by setting standards for students and physicians. The GMC supports them in achieving (and exceeding) those standards, and take action when they are not met. Read more at www.gmc-uk.org.

My journey with AUA has been one of the most memorable parts of my life. I was able to match for the UK’s 2-year Foundation Program on the primary match list. Thanks to the rigorous training and experience with the USMLE based curriculum, I was well prepared for the PLAB exams 1 & 2, and the National Clinical Assessment. I passed and scored well on all of the exams without having done any extra courses in the UK. I truly feel that AUA’s guidance and curriculum gave me the knowledge and confidence to be successful in my journey to the UK.
The transfer from AUA to Warwick Medical School (WMS) is an act that I am truly grateful for. The training that I was provided at AUA with both basic sciences and clinical skills gave me an upper hand when starting with the second years at WMS. I felt I had more in-depth knowledge than what the students were currently learning, however there was still a lot that I had to learn, in particular Values, Ethics and Population studies! The staff at WMS were very welcoming as they invited me a week ahead, to introduce me to several professors personally and prepare me for the studies ahead.
